This weekend coming up is Doors Open Halifax.  This is one of the best events that Halifax has every year.  It’s just as it says, it is a group of buildings and places that are not normally open to the public.  This years list can be found here:

Last year some of the best buildings I found myself in were the old town clock, the old scotia bank as well as some of the churches in Halifax.  If you are planning on heading out, I would recommend possibly starting at the top of the hill and work your way back down.
